I stayed at this hostel for 3 nights. It's fully booked even it's on a low season. Good location. Just 1-2 mins away from the pier (Mae Haad). Comfy bulk bed. Quite private since they got a thin wall seperating each bulk bed. Friendly and helpful staffs. Yes! Very helpful!! The only cons is that it's kinda hot in the room since they got just 2 air-cons pointing to the walkway so there is probably nobody got enough cool from it. I had to turn my head to the opposite side on the bed to have my head cool while some guest decided to sleep naked (no kidding).
They got warm water in the bathroom. No hair dryer. No laundry (it's forbidden to do any laundry in the hostel as well). No staff overnight. No common room (but u can use the bar oppositing to the hostel as a common room and got 10% DC on your orders).
In conclusion, i do recommend this hostel and will stay here again on my next visit.
